What Causes Intense Itching On The Forehead?
The only thing that stops the pain temporarily is a cool shower. This is NEUROLOGICAL. I can't even go outside in the sun anymore. This is not topical.
Medical treatment would help.
Thank you for posting your query.
I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and would try my best to help you.
I have noted your clinical details. Based on this, I agree with you that these sensations are most likely neurological in origin. I have seen several similar patients. This occurs because of involvement of sensory nerves (located in the skin). In my patients, i have used medications such as pregabalin or duloxetine with good success. You could try one of these.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,

You can use pregabalin.
Thank you for getting back.
If you had reactions to duloxetine, please avoid it.
You can use pregabalin capsules.
It is called as Neurological itch, which are sub-served by the same sensory nerves that carry pain sensations.
